    That’s nice, my Lakewood #6 cost $25. Yours is easier to adjust though.

    Hello Mike!  I would like to ask your professional opinion. I saved some money and ready to get a Lie-Nielsen jointer plane. I see that there are two options of №7 plane. One is a normal angle and the other is a Low angle jointer (№7 1/2). What is the difference between these two planes? Could you please point out pros and cons. I will plane a spruce and maple only.
     Thank you very much for your help and time!

    Great review and very informative. Bought myself this plane after watching this video. Thanks.

    Exactly. The #6 is great for jointing and planing – it’s a little lighter and more easily managed, but not quite as long for getting a straight edge on longer boards. Not really a huge deal, the #6 can work very well.

    the sound of hand plane making shavings is priceless…

    Very informative, and I learnt a lot of stuff I didn’t know, thanks.

    I enjoyed watching this very informative video and especially appreciate you use of common American measurements and not using that foreign metric stuff..

    I would like your opinion concerning the No. 7 jointer plane,
    I make tables from hard wood, average sizes are 3 X 5 feet, I am torn between the NO.7 Clifton and the No.8 LN plane.
    I really lke the Clifton No.7 because of the beefier body casting, BUT, the extra width and length of the LN is interesting to me…
    Please let me know what you think…

    I see that jointer in the back ground boy don’t play.

    No 7 or 8.. 7 or 8..

    So I got a No 8. Don’t know when I’ll be using it though.

    Just started woodworking, and quite content to learn how to properly plane with just Stanley No 4 and 5. But then, the government in my country announced it was implementing a new tax, which would be applicable even to stuff bought online.

    The deadline for the tax implementation was coming up, so I just bit the bullet and bought a bunch of LN planes, and a Veritas router plane, and hopefully I saved a ton of money that would’ve just gone to taxes. Those planes will now sit in their anti-corrosion wrappings until I’m proficient enough with the Stanleys and ready to go to the next level. Who knows when that will happen. Oh well.

    Not to be a downer on Lie Nelson, but personally, I think that Lie Nelson is a little over-rated. You can make your own knob, you can buy different blades, you can set your plane up nicely to get a great cut, and not have to pay tonnes of money.

    Yup, thanks! Hate making those mistakes mid-stream 😉

    Hello Mike!  I would appreciate your help very much.  I’d like to buy a plane to joint violin (viola) plates. (up to 20 inch long) I am considering LN №62 Low angle and № 7 1/2 Low angle. What would you suggest?  Thank you very much!

  16. Explorer Wagon on September 7, 2022 at 1:54 am

    Great video helped me a lot. I have been looking to buy this plane. My shop is set the same and your points for using it sold me!

  17. Chad Cooper on September 7, 2022 at 1:56 am

    Morton you are awesome.  Great attitude and great skill.

  21. Hugh MacDonald on September 7, 2022 at 2:03 am

    Where’d you get the bronze 4 1/2?

  22. Landon Cox on September 7, 2022 at 2:05 am

    Fun fact: the Highland Woodworking logo looks like a kangaroo lying on its back. You’ll never un-see it.

  23. Richard Leon on September 7, 2022 at 2:06 am

    Fantastic plane. I use mine all the time, sometimes I even set it up for smoothing cuts because it’s that good.

  24. Shannon Brown on September 7, 2022 at 2:08 am

    About 4 years ago they made a special edition bronze 4 1/2 for a limited time. They are hardcore collector’s items now.

  25. Mike Morton on September 7, 2022 at 2:09 am

    I got it directly from Lie-Nielsen. It was used as an anniversary edition. You could try calling and see if there are any more castings in stock.
